Urinary Catheter: Care at Home (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Your child has come home from the hospital with a urinary catheter. A catheter is a thin tube. A urinary catheter drains urine (pee) from your child's bladder to the outside of the body. There are some things you need to do to look after your child's catheter at home. Parents and older children can learn how to care for a catheter. Before your child goes home, a nurse will show you what to do. This page also explains what to do. There are different types of urinary catheters: A Foley catheter enters your child's bladder through the tube that carries urine out of the body (the urethra). A suprapubic catheter enters your child's bladder through a cut in the belly. You care for both these catheters the same way. Audio available. (English)
